Course programme

What you will Study

You will study the practical skills required to complete the NVQ Level 2 Diploma in Hairdressing including; customer service, consultation, shampooing and conditioning, cutting hair using basic techniques, styling and finishing hair, setting and dressing hair, perming and neutralising, colour and lighten hair and develop and maintain your effectiveness at work. Also included in the course is a qualification in Employee Rights and Responsibilities, where you will study important topics such as contracts of employment, pay and holiday entitlement.

You will also be expected to work towards Functional Skills qualifications at Level 1 Maths and Level 1 English unless you have already achieved an equivalent GCSE in Maths and English.

Maths and English (and sometimes IT) are key elements of apprenticeship programmes and if you do not already have a GCSE at grade A*-C in these subjects you will be required to study Functional Skills at the appropriate levels.

Skills in Maths and English will support your apprenticeship programme, assisting you with assignment writing, research, job applications, presentations, managing your own finances and interpretation of data, to mention just a few. They will also help you in the future. Most employers are looking for ability in these areas and the majority of university courses require you to have Maths and English GCSEs at A*-C. This is why the development of Maths and English is so important, whatever your field of study.

How you will Learn
You will be in College one full day/evening per week and undertake modules of study, including both theory and practice. Some training and assessment may take place in the workplace and home study will be required. There will be opportunities to attend training from companies such as Balmain hair extensions and Wella, and to enter internal and external competitions such as WorldSkills UK. Optional trips include Salon International at London's Excel exhibition centre and Hair shows and competions at Blackpool Winter Gardens.

How you will be Assessed
Assessment will be continuous through oral and written tests, assignments and practical work. Practical assessment will take place on real clients in College, and an assessor will visit you in the salon to carry out practical assessment and monitor your progress. If you are required to complete Functional Skills, you may be required to attend College for a block week during your course. Certification will be accredited on completion of your portfolio of evidence and achievement of Functional Skills.
